Crowder visits sports hernia specialist in Philly

NFL_crowder.jpgContrary to a report that Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder visited with orthopedic specialist Dr. James Andrews, a league source tells us that Crowder missed practice on Friday to see Dr. Bill Meyers, whose specialty is sports hernias.

And so common sense suggests that Crowder is being evaluated for a sports hernia, which obviously would cause problems in the groin area.

As Brian Allee-Walsh of NewOrleans.com pointed out earlier this year, Dr. Meyers repaired sports hernias for eight Saints players in a 20-month window.
